Today we learnt about Visual Storytelling and Stills Telling Stories. Visual Storytelling is most prevalent in comics, each panel is in order and tells its own story to the reader. An example being a comic called Hawkeye, Pizza is my business where one of the stories was told from the perspective of a dog, it relied on pictograms to describe visual clues (ie the appearance of characters).
We watched a short movie titled La Jetee (1962), the story relied solely on a succession of still images to progress the story. I found the movie to be quite mysterious, some of the music was quite dramatic and eerie also the concept of time travel is something I’ve always had an interest in.
